Sometimes, you’ve just got to treat yo’self. After I ran a PB in the Sheffield Half Marathon last weekend, I was definitely in the mood for some treating, and why the hell not. I earned it.
Feeling all virtuous and totally kick ass, I ordered one of Life Box‘s food packages, crammed full of clean treats and much more. Life Box are a food subscription box service offering super good for you super foods delivered in a box of joy. Let’s face it, we’re all always hugely busy, so subscription services like this really hit the mark when it comes to trying to keep healthy on the go. Now, the boxes may be little pricey, but are a great way to introduce yourself to some things you might not have heard of (wtf is yacon?), whilst teaching you about the health benefits and encouraging to make treats for yourself out of the box contents.
I ordered the Vegan Spring Cleanse box – absolutely perfect for how I’m approaching food at the moment (ain’t no dairy up in here).
I am so behind LB’s ethos – they only source products from brands who share their same passion for health and wellbeing, and any product within an LB food box must comply with two of their rules: UK-based, refined sugar free, organic, GMO free, raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, wheat free and no preservatives or additives. So you know that anything in these boxes is going to be hella good for your health.
I’m not going to lie, I love getting parcels delivered (feels like Christmas, non?) and was actually surprised at how hefty the box was when it arrived, and now I know why. It contains a huge selection goodness; from Sister & Co’s coconut oil (perfect for cooking, and hair, skin and nail treatments) to matcha green tea and raw cacao – brilliantly convenient bits and bobs for a hectic lifestyle. However, some of favourite components are LB’s own pre-mixed packets, encouraging you to make-your-own and learn about the health benefits along the way. The Spring Cleanse box comes with mixes for Chia Seed Jam (already soaking ready for making up as I type), and Flaxseed Crackers, which may sound a little dull but the mix is crammed full of fibre-packed seeds – essential for good digestion.
I really can’t recommend Life Box enough – sure it may be a little pricey for a subscription box but the lovingly sourced and selected goodies inside are 100% worth it and you’ll discover some healthy gems you might not have heard of before. Win all round.
Have you tried Life Box before?
